Ryan and Michelle, and their 3 children aged 14, 12 and 10.  Ryan is the Associate Dean of the JR Shaw School of Business at NAIT.  Michelle is a Maternity Nurse at the Grey Nuns Hospital.  The kids are athletes, just like their parents.  They also love to travel throughout Alberta, B.C. and internationally.


Before moving back to Canada for Ryan to pursue a Masters in Business Administration at the University of Alberta, the family spent time overseas.  Michelle had previously lived in Edmonton while attending the University of Alberta, and was somewhat familiar with what to expect.


When searching for a neighbourhood, they wanted to rent something close to U of A, affordable, family friendly and close to the river valley.   North Glenora offers all of these things, but the biggest selling point was that the local elementary school, Coronation Elementary, is an International Baccalaureate World School.  This program focuses on knowledgeable and inquiring...

Meet Klaus Rubba, the very qualified chief bartender of North Glenora Pub nights!


Klaus and his wife Maki both grew up in Edmonton.  They moved away to Vancouver in 1999, and then returned 2 years later to start a family.


Maki worked as a chemist and bookkeeper before they had children.  Maki continues to bookkeep, and has also ventured into foodie pursuits, writing a blog and food styling for television.    Klaus has been a software developer for over 20 years, with a recent focus on mobile apps, one of which is https://communibee.ca/ which is being used by dozens of Community Leagues across Edmonton.


Klaus is the chair of Adult Programs for the North Glenora Community League, and hosts the monthly Pub Night at the community hall.  The community league is very active, which further adds to the community’s vibrancy!


Maki and Klaus chose North Glenora for its proximity to downtown, and to schools like University of Alberta, NAIT and Grant McEwan.  They...

After being born and raised in the community, Adrian purchased a home only a few blocks from his parents, and a few blocks from his grandparents.   Carolyn moved to Edmonton from Red Deer to attend college. Adrian and Carolyn married, and in 2013, built a new home on the site to fit their growing family.  They are the proud parents of 4 beautiful children - three girls and one boy.

 

The Aarnoutse’s love North Glenora for the sense of community and abundance of young families.  They state that in the winter after a snowfall, it almost feels like a competition to see who can clear the neighbours sidewalk first.   In the summer, block parties and BBQ’s are held. They also enjoy the simple pleasure of sitting on their front deck watching their children play, while neighbours, friends and family spontaneously stop by for a beer.  They have found that through these connections, people look out for each other’s homes, and for each other.

Dave was born in Halifax, and after a brief stint in Cold Lake, was raised in Edmonton living in Belmead, Jasper Place and Millwoods.  Deb moved to Edmonton from Vancouver in 2003, and after meeting Dave, they married and moved to a condo in Oliver.  


When they started shopping for a house, they looked for a neighbourhood with an active community league.  They made the decision in 2006 to buy their home (the former Yearwood residence) after sitting outside the North Glenora Community League, on a bench dedicated to Dave Yearwood, enjoying the park where they imagined their son and future children playing.


Dave started Community League events such as Pub Night and Kids Movie Night.  They and their children, along with many others, have contributed to the success of various events including Community League Day, and Halloween and New Year’s Eve family parties - always happy to put up or take down decorations, cook turkeys, clear plates, and push a broom.


Currently,...
